Event: BioNike Defence B-Lucent Range

Last month, I was invited to the official launch of BioNike's B-Lucent range at The Spa-Lon - located at Chijmes. It was a small event exclusively for bloggers and I'm glad I got selected to be part of it! Chairs and sofas were arranged in such a way that we could interact with one another before the presentation for BioNike's brand philosophy and its products start. Also, the staffs at The Spa Lon were friendly and took the initiative to ask each and every blogger whether they need a drink and served them up in a tray!

Before this event, I haven't actually come across this brand: Bionike. Surprisingly it has already been in Singapore market for more than 5 years! Let me tell you more about their brand: BioNike is an Italian skincare brand created in the 1960s. Their products are based on a "allergen-free philosophy", which means the products contain no preservatives, no fragrances, no gluten and are nickel tested. In other words, these products are suitable even for those with sensitive skin as nickel, preservatives and fragrances are known to cause skin irritation and other allergies.

Another great news is that BioNike is slowly expanding their market this year, which is one of the reasons they held the very first blogger event, so for those with sensitive skin and has been trying to look for a suitable product, do remember to give a try ;)

Back to the event, here are some pictures of the product range that was introduced at the event. This range is a solution for dark spots and hyper-pigmentation.

2. Defence B-Lucent Skin-Evening Concentrate (Intensive treatment)

4. Defence B-Lucent Skin-Evening Hands Cream SPF20 (Hydration and Protection)
5. Defence B-Lucent Roll-on Focus (Intensive treatment)
(only 1-4 shown in image above)

The range of products were passed around for us to sample during the presentation. The first thing I did was to smell the products. Even though the products contain no fragrance, the natural ingredients used in them does produce a slight pleasant scent which is same throughout the range. As most of the products are meant for face, I can't really comment on them. I do like the hand cream though, it's non-sticky and absorbed well into my skin, keeping it moisturized.

Each of us were give a cupcake from Twelve Cupcakes and 2 cookies. I chose red velvet, have always been curious how this taste. It was kinda disappointing actually, to me it tasted just like a normal cupcake and the cream had a hint of sour cream which I dislike. The only thing I like would be the small heart deco at the top of the cupcake :/
Overall the event was enjoyable and I learnt more not only about the product range but also using of skincare products in general. Everyone left the place with a pink gift box containing 2 products from BioNike's Defence B-Lucent range. I will be reviewing them soon :)

Review: Owndays PC (Blue Shield) Lenses

A few months ago, I posted a guide & review on Owndays Singapore and mentioned that I would like to get PC lenses with them as well as do a pair of eye glasses in Korea/Japan and I did both! Now I have 3 pairs of spectacles which is alittle too much. Oh well, at least I don't have to worry about not being able to see if I were to lose one pair of spectacles!  Today I'll be reviewing on their PC aka blue shield lenses. They seemed to be emphasizing more on this type of lens lately and I didn't find a review on this so I decided to be the first to start. Owndays PC lenses come with a slight tinted brown colour and blue coating. The purpose of these lenses is to cut down a certain amount of blue light that is being emitted from electronic devices such as computer, mobile phones, TV, etc.  (Picture credited to Owndays Singapore)
You might be wondering, what is blue light and why do we emphasis so much on it now? Blue light is a type of light that is blue in colour(like duh.…

Review & Guide: Owndays Singapore

If you've been to Korea or Japan, you might have heard of getting a pair of spectacles done within the same day or even within minutes! Based on reviews I found online and through friends, it can cost less than $100 for a pair and I have been tempted to get mine done there ever since.

Earlier last year, Owndays decided to expand and opened its first shop in Singapore. To many, it was a relatively new concept to get spectacles within the same day but to me, it's like finally, I have a chance to experience it without having to travel!

A basic introduction to those who are not familiar with the store. Owndays is a brand from Japan that offers all-in-one price (frame + 1.6 high index aspheric lenses) at $98-$198. With 1,500 styles to choose from and processing time of 20 minutes, you can not only find a pair of spectacles to correct your vision but also change them according to different occasions.

I love their open concept. Unlike most optical…

Guide to KORAIL's O Train & V Train

Sightseeing trains are gaining popularity in Korea and it is one of the things you have to try when you're there! Today I'll be sharing on O Train & V Train which started its operations sightly more than a year ago on April 2013. These trains journey through Korea's inland valleys with the O-train looping around the central inland region, running through the provinces of Chungcheongbuk-do, Gangwon-do, and Gyeongsangbuk-do. While the V-train, connecting Buncheon in Gyeongsangbuk-do Province and Cheolam in Gangwon-do Province, runs through scenic valleys. Detailed information on these trains can be found on VisitKorea.

I realized there is a lack of information on the site as to how you can purchase the tickets online or offline and how to best plan the route if you would like to take both trains plus return to Seoul on the same day. So here's a simple post on how I purchased my tickets on the spot and the mistake I made(and you can avoid if you read this post), but …
